Andrew Unthank
 

Drew Unthank represents leading companies in consumer class action defense, complex commercial, and product liability litigation. Drew's successful legal challenge to the Colorado Consumer Protection Act (Hise, et al. v. SSC Submaster Holdings) effectively squashed plaintiffs' ability to bring class claims under the Act.

In addition to his experience litigating consumer protection claims, Drew has successfully defended a variety of class actions, complex commercial, and catastrophic torts claims. He also serves as Chair of the firm’s Recruiting & Diversity Committee. In this role, Drew has introduced behavior-based recruiting and interviewing methods to help the firm identify and hire exceptional attorneys poised to grow with WTO.

Beyond his professional pursuits, Andrew has mentored several first-year law students through the Lawyering Process program at the University of Denver's Sturm College of Law.
